So, since the gossiping is outdoing the stitching I don't have much to show, but there is some progress on Life's Simple Treasures as you can see here...
The pale lemon in the scroll is a bit boring to do so I have been making sure that I do at least one thread's length of the lemon before I do any other colour. I know that I'd end up pulling my hair out if I had to do such a huge area of the same colour at the end. Anyone else feel like that about stitching big expanses of the same colour? So the end is in sight for the scroll part of the design and then I can get cracking with the sea-horse which is the bit I'm most looking forward to doing - although I doubt you'll see it for a while!
Anyhoo, I'm off to make yet another cuppa and have a good old natter with my friend....only got a few more days till she's back in the UK, so I've got to make the most of it!
I apologize for not keeping up with the old blog reading. I will get round to reading and commenting on blogs again soon....promise!
Until next time...happy stitching!
